On the bottom of the MP120 battery compartment there is a little switch:
if pressed the Newt will assume to have rechargeables inside,
otherwise normal batteries.
Of course the Newt will not recharge normal batteries and the same happens
if you insert standard R6 rechargeables, except you put a piece of plastic
or something like that on the bottom below the batteries that they press it
down to the switch.
Doing so you can recharge your cells inside the Newt.
